Emerging Technology



In a small Fort Worth suburb in North Texas, you’ll find a 700,000-squarefoot learning and development center called Deloitte University. DU, as it is known, represents a $300 million Deloitte commitment to develop leadership skills and incubate innovative solutions to complex business challenges worldwide.

More than 200,000 learners have passed through DU’s doors in Westlake, TX, since opening six years ago. The campus boasts 800 guest rooms and 32 classrooms and is an inspiring place to get away from daily tasks and focus on business innovation and leadership development. HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®) was the first outside organization to meet on campus in 2012 and has since held several board meetings there.

Today, the university offers courses that can help individuals earn professional certifications, including credentials offered by HRCI.
